2018 • Upcoming
Special Web Event • Join me for a live online class!
Color on Metal with Cold ConnectionsSat., Jan. 27, 2018 • 12 noon ET
In this live online event, I will join CraftCast host Alison Lee to demonstrate how I add vibrant color to jewelry metal! I’ll show you my “secret sauce” and teach you how to prepare your metal before adding rich layers of color and how to create decorative rivets for accent. We’ll cover riveting, sawing and tab fabrication techniques, plus a live Q & A with workshop participants.
BONUS: My fool-proof way to apply non-drawn designs that you can later color and accent with a touch of gold bling!
Product SKU: 20180127
A full recording and a PDF handout of resources and links is included.
